Wandering further into the garden ‘rooms’, visitors will encounter ‘Greer, Guardian Angel, a striking figure by artist sculptor Ed Elliott, a work which was awarded ‘Sculpture of the Year 2020’ at the Cotswold Sculpture Park.

‘A Wild Escape’ – Wellbeing Day
Oct 2 @ 9:30 am – 3:00 pm
'A Wild Escape' - Wellbeing Day

‘A Wild Escape’ – wellbeing day for adults focused on connecting with nature

In this 5 hour workshop you will immerse yourself in Borde Hill’s beautiful Warren Wood, using your senses to connect with nature and experience the health and wellbeing benefits that woodland can provide.

Spend some time forest bathing in a tree hammock, build a woodland shelter to sit and drink a cup of nettle tea made in a storm kettle. Learn how to light a fire using natural materials and cook a wild lunch. Experience nature through your senses and express yourself through art or poetry exercises.

A real restorative experience!

The outdoors offers unique sensory experiences for the chance to regain balance and escape from the pressures of everyday life. Woodlands are natural havens to escape and provide restorative environments, with sounds, sights and smells stimulating all the senses. Research has shown that people are more relaxed in outdoor environments.

Bushcraft encompasses a range of skills based on primitive ways of living which can help us to harness the benefits of nature and allows us to live with and become attuned to the natural world.

A Halloween Whodunnit Spooktacular
Oct 16 @ 10:00 am – Oct 31 @ 5:00 pm

A Halloween Whodunnit Spooktacular – Daily Story Trail, 16th -31st October

This Halloween, you’re invited to join a spooktacular costume party at Foolish Mortal Mansion. Don your creepiest outfit and come along if you dare… it’s going to be a Halloween party to remember!

The party was in full swing and everyone was having a frightfully good time. The butler was serving a new cocktail called ‘Vampire’s Kiss’, the guests were stomping their feet to the song ‘Monster Mash’ and there was the smell of something rotting hanging in the air.  Suddenly, Lady Mysterious-Powers gave a chilling scream and shouted, “murder on the dance floor”, pointing towards a body laying face down on the tiles. The body was clearly Sir Dangerous Powers, the owner of Foolish Mortal Mansion.

Follow the story trail around the Garden helping Detective Snoop discover what happened to Sir Powers, meeting some of the shady characters who live at the Mansion – we need to find out whodunnit!
